Final Chapel 
Sees Move Up 

Move-up of classes, athletic 
awards, the junior prophecy and 
senior will, and the presentation 
of a gift to president and Mrs. 
Pennington from the student body 
— all were important events 
which crowded the last chapel of 
the year last Thursday. President 
Pennington gave a short talk and

Dormitory Plans Call for 
Semi-Co-op. Next Year 

Late plans announced by Mr. 
Gulley indicate that the college 
dormitories will be run on a semi- 
coqperative plan next year. 

Much trouble was caused this 
year because the dormitory ac- 
counts were kept with the college 
accounts. Next year they will be 
separate. Most of the work done 
this year by NYA students will 
be handled by the members of 
the dormitory. 

Retiring President 

Pacific's New President Plans 

Who will be inaugurated next 
Tuesday as fifth president of 
Pacific college. He will succeed 
Dr. Levi T. Pennington, who re- 
tires this year. 

The college is going to strive 
to increase its enrollment up- 
wards to 200 students and its en- 
dowment to $500,000 in the next 
five years, president-elect Emmett 
W. Gulley stated in an optimistic 
"pep" talk to the students of the 
college last week. 

Professor Gulley also advo- 
cated an enlarged Bible depart- 
ment and more emphasis on mus- 
ic during the forthcoming years, 
as well as some home economics 
and commercial work if the prop- 
er teachers can be found and 
students show enough interest in 
the subjects. 

Along the musical line, if 
enough talented students are 
available, an a capella choir and 
a small orchestra may be started 
next year, Mr. Gulley Baid. He in- 
formed dorm students that the 
dorms will be run on a semi-co- 
operative basis next year.

Hail to Our Chief 

With the celebration of our 50th anniversary it be- 
comes popular to review in retrospect the progress which 
Pacific Collge has made in the past half century. This ten- 
iency is doubtless of value, but even more admirable we 
feel is the progressive, forward outlook which is being 
shown with the prospect of beginning a "new era" for Paci- 

In his recent chapel speech, president-elect Guljey out- 
lined briefly his plans and hopes for the future of our col- 
lege. The response which we have observed has been en- 
couragingly enthusiastic. That old "P. C. lethargy" seems 
to have been overcome ! We hear students discussing means 
of inducing new students to come to Pacific; we hear fav- 
orable comments on proposed changes in the college pro- 
gram; we see concern actually being shown in our stu- 
dent government. With the inauguration of a new presi- 
dent, Pacific is obtaining a transfusion of new life and new 
ambition. The next fifty years will be largely what we 
make them. Let's maintain our enthusiasm . . . Hail to 
our Chief! David M. 

An Appreciation 

With the close of this term comes time to bid farewell 
to one who has given unstintingly of his time, his efforts 
and of himself in advancing our college through a greater 
part of its fifty years. Yet in a deeper sense it cannot be 
farewell but rather the official relinquishing of a position 
of trust and responsibility to another. 

No one who has known President Pennington could pos- 
sibly imagine, nor less desire, the loss of his friendly wis- 
dom and helpful counsel. The task of continuing the dy- 
namic force essential to push the college onward may go 
to another but as long as he maintains his contacts with 
Pacific and with those associated with it, Dr. Pennington 
will remain an invaluable and supremely esteemed member 
of our college staff. 

And we may rest assured that as president emeritus, 
Dr. Pennington will be with us for many years to come. 
Our college could not be the same without his cheery smile, 
his friendly advice, his challenging talks or his "Twice- 
told Tales." In his thirty years in this position of service 
to Pacfic college and to his fellow men, he has shown him- 
self in every way a scholar and a Christian gentleman. 
Most important to us, he has shown that rare quality of 
absolute fairness and sportsmanlike consideration which 
prompts the oft-heard comment: "Prexy — Sure thing! 
He's a swell fellow!" 

And so we bid you, Prexy, not "goodbye," but rather, 
"Thanks a million for what you have meant and will mean 
to Pacific college." David M. 

Visiting alumni seen about the 
campus last week were: Alfreda 
Martin, Arney Houser, and Brock

of the fair senoritas in conjunc- 
tion with the Friends Service 
Committee for the purpose of as- 
sisting in the reconstruction work

ly devastated by earthquake. 

George, who will be remem- 
bered for the fine beard he grew 
while in Alaska last year, is now 
a resident of Middleton, while 
Harvey lives at Rex. 

The faculty of Pacific college 
has long been noted for the great 
and noble work which its indi- 
vidual members have undertak- 
en in such fields. These boys 
will be the first of the student 
body to follow their example. 

Boys, you've got our best wish- 
es and to you, Harvey, be sure 
and come back next year. We 
want to hear all about this!

ligion in the organization and 
the school. Topics such as better 
meetings, the use of the Bible in 
meetings, deputations, campus re- 
lations, etc., were discussed. 

It was brought out that each 
member should have a place of 
service and responsibility, and 
should live up to it.

limself the merits of the TJni- 
•erBity of Oregon versus the Uni- 
ersity of Idaho for his graduate 
srork. He is interested in doing 
pecial work with adolescents, es- 
lecially along the line of voca- 
ional guidance. 

Mark's hobby helped to put him 
hrough college — at least it help- 
d to get him to and from col- 
ege, because "his main hobby is 
itchhiking. He can tell -some in- 
eresting stories about the places

leep through more than one 
lass. He has plenty of pep, which 
ras ably displayed during his two 
ears as yell leader of the student 
ody at Pacific. He has held var- 
)us positions on the school pub- 
cations of the college.

the story of the education of 
George Thomas. 

As a little fellow he practiced 
discipline on his playmates by 
bloodying their noses on the way 
to and from school; now George 
plans to teach discipline by the 
approved method of a paddle. He 
plans to be a teacher, and coach, 
after his graduation next Tues- 
day, but only after doing a little 
missionary work for the Friends 
Service committee in Mexico this 

George was born in Scotts 
Mills, Ore., in 1919 and attended 
school in a little country school 
in Rosedale. When in the third 
grade he moved with his parents 
to Salem where George received 
the shocking experience of break- 
ing his nose while attempting to 
ride the neighbor's cow. The cow, 
to his dismay, wasn't quite as 
tame as he had been led to be- 

While he was in the fifth 
grade his parents homesteaded 
at Gates, where he lived until a 
junior in college. 

George has many hobbies and 
things he enjoys. Traveling, he 
says is about as good as they 
come. And George should know. 
He worked in Alaska for a sum- 
mer, and last Christmas vacation 
he spent on the road between 
here and Mexico. Sports he enjoys 
especially, not only football, bask- 
etball and baseball, in all three 
of which he is a three year let- 
terman, but also hunting and 

His extra curricular activities 
in college have been: Y. M. presi- 
den, deputation chairman and 
secretary, member of the M. A. 
A. counsel, associate editor of 
the Crescent, freshman play cast, 
junior class president, Gold P 
president and student body treas- 




Five Students In 
Who's Who Book 

Five students of Pacific — two 
seniors and three juniors — were- 
represented in the seventh edi- 
tion of "Who's Who Among Stu- 
dents in American Universities 
and Colleges" released the sec- 
ond week of May by the Univer- 
sity of Alabama. The book is a 
compilation of biographies of out- 
standing students in America. 

The two seniors, Mark Fantetti 
and Janet Phipps, and the three 
juniors, Dean Tate, Hazel Mary 
Houser and Josephine H.aldy, 
were chosen by the faculty for 
their scholarship and participa- 
tion in extra-curricular activities. 

The puprose of "Who's Who" 
is to serve: 1, as an incentive for 
students to get the most out of 
their college career; 2, as a 
means of compensation to stud- 
ents for what they have already 
done; 3, as a standard of meas- 
urement for students compar- 
able to such agencies as Phi Beta 
Kappa and the Rhodes Scholar- 
ship award; 4, as a recommenda- 
tion to the Business World. 

Sophomores Give 
Frosh Hay Ride 

Amid the most antagonistic hay- 
seeds that ever shot the gun to 
start the "runners" in a girl's 
stocking, the freshmen and 'sopho- 
mores staged an enjoyable hay- 
ride a week ago Wednesday, and 
explored the night life of Che- 
halem Mountain. After the ride, 
the group of more than 30 stu- 
dents was treated to strawberry 
shortcake at the country home of 
Jean Rogers. 

Mrs. Murdock Honored 

An announcement was made 
last week that Florence Tate Mur- 
dock, retiring vocal teacher at 
the college, has been made a 
member of Mu Phi Epsilon, na- 
tional honorary music fraternity. 
This is a recognition which comes 
to few musicians. 

Alumni Dinner Given 
In Kanyon Hall Tuesday 

An informal dinner will be 
given at 6:30 p. m. Tuesday in 
Kanyon hall. This is an annual 
affair and will be one of the 
more important events in the 
BOth anniversary celebration.

Drop Football? 

Should Pacific college have 
football next year? 

This is a subject creating much 
interest among students, pro and 
con. The largest objection to 
football Is the lack of competi- 
tion that is equal competition. 
Last year the Quakers were 
smeared, like a rat terrier would 
be fighting a Newfoundland dog, 
by heavier teams from schools 
with five or six times the en- 
rollment of Pacific. This is, un- 
doubtedly, a regretable situation, 
but if football continues here the 
same will be true year after year 
unless we start an anti-Atherton 
movement and Import behemoths, 
or unless we can build up our 
enrollment. The latter is the bet- 
ter objective and will be carried 
out to some extent under our 
new policy. 

If football is a part of our 
program next year, Coach Noble 
said recently, nearly $300 will be 
necessary for new suits, trans- 
portation, medical supplies, etc. 
According to his calculations, the 
equipment, including helmets, 
shoulder pads, and pants would 
run to about $272. The athletic 
program is already in the hole 
$90, having obtained new basket- 
ball and baseball suits that are 
second to none in this section. 
But if the students want foot- 
ball — and most of them certainly 
do — a little bit of soliciting could 
easily raise a large part of the 
needed amount. 

Prospects Excellent 
Although this has been a dis- 
astrous year for Pacific in the 
win column, it certainly is no 
""reason— for dropprKgr one o f - tao 
major sports. Prospects couldn't 
be better for next year. 

Reminiscing . . . the football 
team lacked weight, speed and 
experience. Mostly experience. 
And one year makes a lot of dif- 
ference in that respect. With only 
one man lost — George Thomas — 
and several capable men to fill 
his position, and several husky 
fellows to bolster up this year's 
team, and several big fellows 
that will likely come with the 
freshman — then why quit foot- 
ball. Certainly not when there's 
gold dust on the goal posts. 

Who are all the prospects? 
Bales, Christenson, Spirup and 
Heald — all little fellows in a 
uniform — will provide the extra 
fight and zip. Hadlock, Beese, A. 
Booth, E. Roberts, Kyle, Hays, 
Lewis, Stein, Knight, K. Booth, 

Pennant Winners 

Williams, Cunningham, and pos- 
sibly Ed Harmon, as well as the 
expected big boys from the rooks, 
will supply the weight. And re- 
member, experience is a great 
thing, and all these fellows re- 
ceived lots of it last winter. 

Basketball, baseball, track and 
tennis are all In the same cate- 

May Join League 

Coach Golden Noble has been 
informed that the junior collesln 
of this repiVn are planning to 
form a se\en tr ei ;T M team con- 
ference, and they are trying to 
get Pacific college's opinion on 
the matter. Noble has written to 
find out more about the set-up, 
and if things are suitable to 
everyone concerned, Pacific may 
find itself in a basketball, base- 
ball, track and tennis league with 
the junior colleges of Longview, 
Centralia, Clark, Yakima and 
Multnomah college. This would 
be an ideal set-up, as a league is 
the best method of all to inspire 
school spirit. Although the con- 
ference wouldn't have football, 
that wouldn't necessarily mean 
that the college would drop the 
sport. Football could be, played 
and still be stopped in time to 
allow the basketball team to 
round into shape. This might 
mean that the basketball team 
would be slow starting, because 
of kinks that aTe prevalent in 
that sport, but the competition 
would be more equal and certain- 
ly as crowd-pleasing. 

News of M. A. A. 

Along with some other reor- 
ganization, the --formulation and 
drafting of another revised consti- 
tution is now complete and has 
met with the approval of the 
councilmen. It will be submitted 
to the M. A. A. as a whole in the 
immediate future as is conven- 
ient. Plans for formulating a bud- 
get are being considered for the 
coming year. 

The mes of the school are 
deeply appreciative to the mem- 
bers of the club for the assistance 
rendered during the difficult per- 
iod during this baseball season. 
Now the bulk of the organi- 
zation's capita] can be diverted 
in the direction of the gridiron. 

The new M. A. A. council is 
already making plans for the 
establishment of a bigger and 
better athletic program next 
year. A recent meeting was held 
and arrangements for the distri- 
bution of letters and the persons 
eligible for awards were ironed 

Oregon State bowed to Coach Russel Lewis and his Willamette 
Valley league champions of 1916-17, 34 to 25. Captain and star 
player, Emmett W. Gulley is holding the ball. Front row: Walter 
Guyer, Lester Wright, Captain Emmett W. Gulley, Lloyd "Pluto" 
Edwards, and Harold Hinshaw. Back row, Frank Colcord, Coach 
Russel W. Lewis, and Howard Elliott. 

Who led the Quakers through a 
rard year and will be back next 
year with much better prospects 
for winning teams.

Tennis Team Loses 
To Multnomah, 3-1 

Multnomah college's strong 
aggregation of racket wielders 
polished off the Quakers, 3 to 1 
last week on Benson high courts 
in Portland in the last match of 
the season for the local club. 

Dale Miller won the Quaker's 
only match by beating Billings, 
5-7, 6-2, 6-4; George Bales lost 
his first of the season to the 
number 1 Multnomah player, 
Downie, 7-5, 6-2, and Dean Tate 
lost to Leong, 6-4, 6-3. In the 
doubles, Tate and Miller lost to 
Downie and Svendson, 6-4, 6-4.

Final Diamond 
Tilt Downs 
Quakers 5 to 4 

Pitcher Verl Parrish tossed 
four-hit ball, his team mates 
cracked out twice that many hits, 
but still the Quakers were nosed 
out by an outplayed Reed team 
in the last inning, 5 to 4, a week 
ago Friday on the home field. 

It was a good, close game all 
the way, with Pacific errors — 
mostly on bad throws — allowing 
runners to scamper around the 
bases freely. Until the fourth, 
Parrish had a no-hitter in his 
grasp, although the no-run part 
was blasted higher than a kite 
in the second when a run scored 
on a walk and two bad throws. 

This ended the season for the 
Quakers with no wins and four 
defeats. To the pessimist this 
might be classed as terrible, but 
the optimist or clear-thinker will 
regard it as merely experience for 
a team that will come baek in 
full next year. Not a regular will 
be lost by graduation and several 
new prospects, as well as home 
who didn't turn out this year, 
should make future seasons more 

The Quakers starfd fast, scor- 
ing one run in the first and fol- 
lowing it up with one in the third 
and two in the fifth. Reed, be- 
hind until the sixth when they 
scored a run to tie the game, 
brought a run across in the first 
of the seventh to break up the 
game. Lineups:
